A recent article in Loss Prevention Magazine reminds readers that at the heart of every safety and loss prevention program are people dedicated to safeguarding customers, staff, products and equipment. Some businesses may fail to realize the human element behind this essential area of management. Yet, without trained personnel and expert guidance, a company’s most important assets: its staff, clients and materials are at risk, and financial stability is called into question.

With more than a decade of experience partnering with 150+ companies to develop commercial insurance policies, the eMaxx Group knows every nuance of the safety and loss prevention process in the workplace. eMaxx doesn’t dabble in this field; they are a dedicated team of risk management specialists providing ‘eRisk Solutions.’ These professionals possess an average of 20 years of industry experience. From HAZMAT instructors to Department of Transportation (DOT) carrier inspectors, propane, gas and oil system experts, construction health technicians and fire services personnel, these individuals work tirelessly to ensure clients’ policies meet the highest standards for risk management, workplace safety and loss prevention.

The issues are serious, and the stakes are high. The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) reports that “transportation incidents are the leading cause of work-related injury death among all major industry sectors,” particularly in the transportation, warehousing and utilities sector. What can companies do to combat this threat, protect their employees, safeguard their equipment and minimize their financial losses? eMaxx has the answers.

eMaxx professionals offer an array of related services. For example, the DOT regularly conducts on-site audits to evaluate a company’s safety performance and to ensure a company is keeping complete and appropriate records of workers’ compensation and work-related accidents. These reviews can also decide if a company has the proper management procedures in force to ensure it is adhering to Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration requirements. Compliance is a hefty job. However, with eMaxx professionals, clients can feel confident that their compliance is in order, claims are being filed properly and the well-being of their stakeholders is being addressed fully. To assist with this process, eMaxx offers outstanding mock DOT/OSHA audits so clients will always feel prepared and in charge.

eMaxx also offers unparalleled incentive program development which, according to OSHA standards, rewards employees for reporting “injuries, illnesses, near-misses or hazards” and/or encourages workers to become involved in their “safety and health management system.” Other eMaxx options include driver training, certified employee training, RigPass training and OSHA 10/30 hour classes for general industry and construction.

Don’t squander your most important assets. Place the well-being of your employees first, minimize risk and, as a result, ensure your financial stability. Contact the seasoned professionals at eMaxx to learn how to implement your custom safety and loss prevention program.
